John Tudor spent most of his twelve years in the show with the Saint Louis Cardinals. Tudor was drafted in the third round by the Boston Red Sox and made his MLB debut in 1979 for the club. He played the next five years with Boston having decent success before joining the Cardinals in 1985 where he became a phenomenal pitcher. In his inaugural Cardinals season, Tudor finished second in the CY Young race, with a league leading ten complete game shutouts during the 1985 season.
During his time with the Cardinals, Tudor had a winning percentage of .705 and an ERA of 2.52. In 1988, Tudor added World Series Champion to his already impressive resume with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Upon retiring, Tudor tallied 117 wins and 988 strikeouts in almost 1,800 innings pitched.
His performance with the Cardinals in 1985 is still remembered by many as one of the best pitching years in Saint Louis history. Sponsorship of the STL Legends Game for St. Louis companies are still available, including opportunities to participate in the game and meet the Legends in a private setting.
